Here are some suggestions for things you need to help your new puppy be health
Clan Calhoun puppies begin their core vaccination schedule at around 6 weeks
of age, be aware your new puppy does not have full immunity to common
diseases like Parvo until a series of 3 separate vaccinations (normally by 9-14-16
weeks) are completed. This means that you should fully understand the incidence
of multi drug sensitivities in this breed.
I do recommend a grain free diet. We prefer brands such as "Taste Of The Wild"
OR a Holistic Food (wheat, corn and soy free) like Hunden Flocken.
Of course, a raw diet is ideal but not everyone can manage it. Adding raw quality
meats and bones and cooked vegetables is a healthy addition to a Collie's diet.
Keep your puppy away from dog parks, rest stops, pet stores and even off of
vet clinic floors to keep your puppy from possibly catching something before
immunity is built up.
We recommend using a core vaccination schedule that is limited to the most at
risk diseases for your dogs lifestyle and regional area. Although Clan Calhoun
Collies tests for MDR1. Be sure your veterinarian uses "Collie safe " medications
and drugs. Especially heart worm medication. Be sure your vet is aware of the
medication that ARE and ARE NOT safe for collies.
